I know it say AT&T, but does that include Cricket?
S&D is OK but what I’m really looking for is the S&M version with the exploding battery option
Yes. Cricket is owned by AT&T now. But even before that, Cricket uses the same LTE and GSM bands that AT&T uses. So you’re fine.
I have this same model and I use Cricket. Outside of Wyoming and western Nebraska, I rarely have any problems with reception.
If you are in the market for an S5, this is the model to get. This one can be easily rooted and a custom ROM can be easily flashed to this model, if that’s your sort of thing. They are up to Android Nougat now with Lineage:
I’m actually thinking of getting this as a backup or a dev unit. For the price, I won’t be too upset if it gets borked.
I bought this on the last sale here. They really meant “S&D” this time, unlike a previous couple of phone buys… the chrome mid-frame was scraped up really badly and looks terrible. Embarrassingly so. That aside, this is a great price for one of the last great phones with removable battery and MicroSD slot, and because it’s the T-Mobile variant, it also has an unlocked bootloader. I’m tempted to roll the dice and buy another in hopes of fewer Scratches and Dents.
Gah! Where is the VZW version when i need one. Had my S5 break a few hours ago. Oh well.
Bought this back in February and, though it’s a trooper of a phone, as other commenters mentioned, it’s a “true S&D.” I ended up buffing off the remainder of the chrome bezel with some fine sandpaper, then putting in a case. Still doesn’t hold a candle to my Nexus 5X, but for a Benjamin, this is a great deal on a decent phone.
While a solid phone otherwise, please be a are that this phone does NOT have Band 12 (700) access which means that much of the expanded LTE area recently added by TMO is inaccessible. The Note 4 was the first in the Galaxy line to have it, I believe.
A hundred bucks for a 3 and a half year old scratch and dent phone. That’s a hard pass, Lone Rider.
S5 was released well before all of that. In fact, it’s one of the last Samsung phones - if not the last - with a removable battery.
I bought one to use on straight talk. All of the features only work with a T mobile sim card, but I get zero service nearly everywhere I go. I switched to an ATT sim card and get good service but cannot send or receive pics or group messages. Probably specific to my area (east central Indiana) I tried changing the data settings several times to no avail.
Can you use this on Verizon?
Hey there, thanks for the question. These are only compatible with T-Mobile and AT&T.
You probably need to update the apn settings on the phone so it uses the correct service for MMS which is the protocol that group texts and picture messages uses. Especially if regular texts and data work. Just google “edit apn settings galaxy S5” and “straight talk at&T mms settings”.
I looked at the past reviews for this phone and they are awful. If you click the above links, the one that show three reviews, you can click on even older Woots and you’ll see a lot of reviews describing the phones in horrible condition, not unlocked or simply inoperable.
Make sure to not only click on the three links but the other links on those reviews to see the full story.
You might get luck but it seems like a lot of people were unhappy with these. So make sure you seek out all the times this phone was sold in the past on here and read the comments before hitting that buy button.
I sprung for 2 of these last Feb. because many consider the S-5 to be the best phone ever made by Samsung. Both only had slight scratches on the case. My problem is that even with the T-mobile sim from Consumer Cellular (they were unlocked T-mobile phones) and numerous tries at different APN settings provided, they will still not make wifi phone calls. I am weary of the “err101 - invalid certificate” message and neither Samsung or Consumer Cellular can seem to help. They are connected and constantly download updates thru my Asus gigabyte router but no calls work. Odd but I had no problem with my old Galaxy 4S. Anyone have a solution?
Praised the gods for the removable/replaceable battery and the SD card slot!
Exactly. This is why I’m still on my S5. I don’t mind dropping serious cash on a phone, but no one is making one that can hold a candle to this and its removable battery and SD. I flash a custom ROM so I can rock the latest Android on it too, which runs fine.
I wouldn’t mind a spare or two, but unless this is the actual 900T model for T-Mobile so it has all the bands and an UNLOCKED BOOTLOADER I’m not interested. I didn’t see any mention of exactly what model this is though.
